Bluegrass & BBQ at the garden!

It was a real treat to hear the bluegrass trio Walking in Sunlight perform at our annual garden barbecue on September 12! Special thanks go out to Greg, Nathan, and Eva for serenading us with their beautiful harmonies and guitar and banjo playing, and to Nigel for hooking us up with the band.

We had a really great time that day -- enjoying bluegrass on the back patio, delicious food from the grill and potluck, and having fun hanging out in front of the garden.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a success, including: David and Josh for handling the barbecue, Rick for taking photos and assisting with set-up, Gabriel for helping pick up some of the food, and Chandler for giving me a hand with the clean-up. A big thank you to Raven, Theo, Maizie, and Ian for the bubbles and wonderful chalk drawings on the front sidewalk!

We had a lot of leftover burgers and hot dogs so I froze them and figured we'd have another cook-out before the end of the year maybe after our fall workday (probably the first weekend in November). Stay tuned for an announcement.

Check out some photos from the event. See you next time!
